Doggie Facebook

Rather than going to her usual spot, peeing, then jumping up on to the sidewalk to kick nonexistent dirt over it, the dog is nosing around her favorite stump with unexpected intensity.

"What's going on?" I ask, mostly rhetorically.

She ignores me as she takes another loop around the stump, sniffing at each place another dog has peed as she goes, until she finally leans up against the stump at the most awkward angle possible, nearly falling over in the process, and squats. Here, apparently, wedged between the car and a dead tree, with almost no place to stand, here is the ideal place for her to leave her contribution to the conversation.
